You said I needed to check the F2.9 fuse, I done that the fuse is okay
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 6 years ago.

if you dont have power on the pink/black wire at the wiper motor, and he fuse is good and has power when the key is on, then there is a break in the pink/black wire some where, the wires goes directly from the fuse to the motor,tim

After checking out everything that you said, we still could not get the wiper motor on the rear to work. We then took it to a mechanic who worked on it and then gave up. We have done the same.
